Newtown, Pennsylvania: Bird & Bull Press, 1998. No. 174 OF 225 COPIES. Hardcover. 324 x 235 mm (12 3/4 x 9 1/4"). 152 pp., [7] leaves. With a foreword and notes by Henry Morris. No. 174 OF 225 COPIES. Publisher's black quarter morocco over red Japanese cloth, flat spine with red morocco label. In the original tan silk-covered folding box with red morocco label. With 30 pages of black and white illustrations, 30 tip-ins (many in full color), seven original folio or quarto leaves from Mountain House Press books, and four original samples of papers made by all three generations of Hunters. Prospectus laid in at front. In mint condition. This is both a synopsis and a continuation of "The Life Work of Dard Hunter," intended to make materials from that strictly limited set available to a wider audience and to document the impressive works of its author, Dard Hunter, II, described by printer Henry Morris as "a man whose exceptional talents were completely masked by his extreme modesty." An especially interesting feature is a fascmile of the production log Hunter II maintained during the dozen years he labored on "Life Work.".
